New dress for formal! (aka, bringing sexy back.)

2 Feb

Hello All! I’m so excited to have been asked to participate in the David’s Bridal Prom Blog Tour. At first, I was a little bit skeptical about being able to find the perfect dress for my upcoming sorority formal at David’s Bridal. I had visions of wedding and bridesmaids dresses in my head- not exactly what I was looking for. However, after looking online in their newly revamped Prom Section I decided to give it a try.

I showed up to the store for my appointment, and the manager and my sales associate were ready and waiting for me. They were extremely friendly and gave me an overview of the selection, as well as took my measurements for a precise fitting. I tried on SO. MANY. DRESSES. All of them were gorgeous and it was tough picking just one. I couldn’t decide on long or short, color or black, but in the end I went with this gorgeous floor-length royal blue backless showstopper. It’s so different from anything else I own and the fabric and beading exhibit extremely quality craftsmanship. One minor problem I ran into was that I was really in between sizes in the women’s department. Luckily, they also had a big selection in juniors and I was able to get a better fit from there.

When I got home, my sorority sisters couldn’t believe that this dress was under $200… a few of them had been looking at very similar dresses at stores like BCBG for around $300-$500. The dress I picked is just as fabulous and won’t break the bank! After my positive experience, I’m definitely a DB convert. Do you have a formal or prom coming up? What type of dress do you plan to wear? Have you ever found something perfect in an unexpected place before? Do share!

P.S. I think we can all agree it’s about time for a spray tan, no?

    Rachel, I started to cry when I saw these pictures. You took my breath away. You have grown into what heck of a beautiful woman. I was the second one your mother told when she found out she was pregnant with you and I was honored to be there the day you were born. Your an amazing and beautiful woman, one that makes me happy to call my cousin. I love you, beautiful one.

    Sigh. I miss sorority formals.
